Big cleanup nets 930 lbs. of trash

Big clean-up means more trees

April 23. Cornelius Parks and Recreation, Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists and more than 20 volunteers collected 930 lbs. of trash throughout Cornelius and Lake Norman this past weekend.

For every 25 lbs of trash collected, the North Carolina Wildlife Federation will be donating one tree, and the Lake Norman Wildlife Conservationists will match their donation. These trees will be planted throughout Cornelius parks, including to continue the work of reforesting Robbins Park after the recent removal of invasive bamboo.

The coordinated effort was organized by the North Carolina Wildlife Federation.
